No-one ever said you'd have to have a degree before taking a
certification test. Just as a degree would not stand in lieu
of certification, certification would not stand in lieu of a degree.
They would be distinct items for employers to consider.

No-one ever said you'd have to have a certificate before entering an
STC competition.

Don't lose your perspective. Certification is being discussed and debated.
If it is deemed valuable, then it will still take *years* before it could
be implemented and even longer before it would have a significant impact
on the profession.

On the other hand, I believe the time is ripe for this discussion.
